Disgustingly Delicious Rocky Road

This has got to be the most delectable, more-ish dishes I have had the pleasure of making (and the guilt of eating!). In all its gooey, sticky mess, it is incredibly yummy when warm (ie straight out of the mixing bowl!) and if you can wait long enough, is crunchy and soft all at the same time. The proof is in the following pics!

And, I will admit to not being a chocoholic, and just not understanding what it is about chocolate that makes people tick. However this may truely make me a convert!

Recipe (add or remove what you like/don't like):
400 grams of dark chocolate (not cooking chocolate)
400 grams of milk chocolate (again, not cooking chocolate)
150 grams brazil nuts, each chopped in half
1/2 cup desiccated cocount
100 grams roasted chopped peanuts
250 grams glace cherries (this really makes it!)
2 handfuls of squishy marshmallows
Line a rectagular tray with silicon paper. Melt the chocolate in the microwave (do this in 30 second bouts and stir in between until melted). Then add the nuts, coconut, peanuts and cherries and mix these through, Then add the marshmallows (add these last so they don't melt with the warmth of the chocolate and to allow them to keep their shape). Then after trying just a little bit (or alot!!) pour into the try and spread. Keep at room temperature to cool as this results in a smoother chocolate (may need to be refrigerated if you are making this in 37 celcius-degree heat like I did!). Then, tip out onto chopping board (not one you use to chop onion and carlic on!!) and slice into slabs or squares. Devour before anyone else does!!
Bon appetite!

Lisa: Yummo indeed!!

Houda: I have to admit, I had eaten so much of this stuff I went without lunch or dinner...LOL I just felt too sick!!;O But I will make it again, just on a cooler day so I won't have to put it in the fridge.

LunaRossa & notSupermum: I have to say that it is the perfect one to get the kids involved in. They can also add what they love like the little marshmallows or chopped up lollies instead of the cherries. And then watch them run around like mad burning off that sugar high!

Aspiring writer: I can't tell you how yummy it is!
